Monday Night Netball
Round 8 games were played last night and from our nine teams we had six teams win, one team draw and two teams narrowly losing by 1 point. Great netball played by all with one more week to end the rounds and then all teams will know who is in the top four for finals. Currently, we have five teams progressing towards the top four, which is an excellent result. A special mention goes to our Senior A girls with their win putting them firmly in contention for a 3rd place finish for the season. A remarkable effort!
Thank you to all the PLC supporters for braving the cold and supporting all our teams in the last weeks of our competition. We are looking forward to a strong finish to the season!
With the sun going down earlier and the chill coming in, our Senior teams continued to step up to play to their best in their fixtures this week. Our Senior Girls teams went down in some tough matches against quality opposition. The Senior Girls Team 2 held Matthew Flinders to 1 all at halftime but couldn’t find the momentum to take out the game. Well done to our Senior Boys for a strong 4-1 home win over Suncoast at home.
Junior and Intermediate Volleyball
Our Intermediate Boys and Girls were all off campus this week and faced some tough opposition in CCPS and SCGS. The Intermediate Boys and Girls Team 1 went down 1-2 in their fixtures, with the Intermediate Girls Team 2 going down 0-2. Our Junior teams had a home game with both boys and girls playing competitively in their fixtures. The Junior Girls pushed past a hard first set to push Immanuel to within a few points of the following sets. Congratulations to the Junior Boys team for their strong win over Good Shepherd which should see them hold onto 2nd place on the table.
Trish Buckley Volleyball
Our Year 8 Boys and Girls Teams represented PLC incredibly well for their last fixtures of the Trish Buckley competition. It was another massive afternoon and evening for our students, parents and coaches having to be at the venue from 5.00pm until close to 10.00pm. Our students’ commitment to their teams has been nothing short of fantastic and we have always had our players ready for games and duties. Our teams have learnt a lot from their first Trish Buckley campaign, and I am sure that we will see many of these students continue on in representative volleyball in the years to come.
Well done to our Intermediate Basketball boys who played in the Basketball Blitz competition last night. It was a great showing for our boys with a gritty 1-point win against the Senior Unity Boys team as well as a tight loss against Meridan. Our boys are showing great signs in their preparation for the All Schools season and CBSQ in Term 4. Thank you to Mr Brad Burdon for all his hard work in preparing our players for their basketball pursuits.
Term 3 Competitive and Friday Sport
Thank you to all the students who have signed up for Competitive Sports in Term 3. We have had another huge uptake for competitive sports teams, and it looks like we will have 16 Basketball, 6 Touch Football, 3 Water Polo and potentially 2 Girls 10 a side Rugby teams. An amazing effort from our students. We are looking to get information out by next week to all competitive teams so there may be some lunchtime meetings to confirm numbers.
Please note that Term 3 Friday Sports Sign Up will go live on Monday the 5th of June and close Wednesday the 14th of June. Students will be emailed the options along with the link to sign up.
